The Big Pool

Everett has been asking to go to the "big pool" for a while. I looked on the schedule and saw that it was open today. Everett had the day off speech therapy and Jake had the day off so it was a perfect day to go. 

EXCEPT…… that it was only 80 degrees!!

We survived for about two hours. It was 80 and cloudy then the wind started blowing, it started raining, and it dropped to 77 so we called it a day! (Jake said it remind him of his days at Wild Waves in WA as a kid!)

We had a lot of fun though. Both kids love the water so I'm sure we'll be back soon!

Watching The Sun Rise

I really love exercise. I love the way I feel after, I love watching my body change, I love the feeling of exhaustion afterwards, I love feeling my muscles burn and being sore the next day, I love the alone time, and I LOVE exercising outside. It's how and where I get my energy for the day!

Wednesday morning I left the house at 5:30 and made my way to the mountain. 

I got there just in time to turn around and see the sun come over the mountains. It was beautiful. 

I rode one of the trails and then headed back home. 

It was such a great way to start the morning and I loved everything about it. 

It was 15 miles total and it took 90 minutes…. a 6 minute mile…. to think that people can run that fast is mind blowing!! I'll take the bike over running any day, especially mountain biking. 

I have to be honest though, Jake's been mountain biking a lot lately. He started going with our neighbors early in the mornings and then would ride by himself sometimes. He rode to the mountain one morning when they couldn't go. Twice now he's ridden to the mountain and then on trails. So I decided it was my turn. He totally pumped up my tires, got my helmet out, and filled up the camel bak for me the night before! 

I almost didn't go that morning because Everett has been getting up and night… but I'm glad I did and I can't wait to go again!

Life Is Good

How could it be bad with a view like this??

Tech Junkie

I think one of the main reasons why Everett didn't want to go to preschool anymore was because he'd usually have to stop playing with the phone or iPad to get in the car to go. So for one week I told him that he couldn't watch/play the phone/ipad/tv/computer. About four days into it he found Jake's iPod.

Sneaky little monster! But it only lasted 20 min, before he was out!

Now he's allowed one hour or one movie after 3 pm. It's only been a week… but it's been a good week!!

Blowing Bubbles

We've already been through at least 4 huge bottles of bubbles. Breckie is a big fan of the wand and blowing and Everett is like a bubble ninja… gotta pop 'em all!!

Food Fight

Breckie used to eat food. Now she just plays with it.


A few days ago I gave her graham crackers and milk to see if she'd eat that...

What am I going to do with this girl??

She doesn't eat more than a tablespoon of anything. And she's starting to gag on things and then cough and then she pukes everywhere. It happened in church today AGAIN and then again a few hours later. I'm starting to wonder if it has anything to do with whole milk? She used to eat food and not puke and was happier before whole milk… so we put her to bed with a bottle of formula tonight.

She's also had pretty severe diaper rash, rashes on her forearms and hands, and her poop is yellowy-white. Strange things are happening around here….
